How to smell fresh without using perfume

When we think of a scented person, the first thing that comes to mind is perfume. After all, is there anything more remarkable than someone who, when he passes by, leaves that delicious scent of perfume in the air?

However, perfumes are not the only resource we can use to have a good smell on our skin, hair and clothes. Investing in products with a fragrance that stands out and resembles perfumes is the option for those who do not like perfumes or who are allergic to the substances present in them.

Here are some of the items you can find in cosmetics stores, supermarkets and pharmacies that are allies for those who like to always smell good even without using perfume.

Body moisturizers have a basic function: to leave the skin soft and hydrated, with a healthy appearance. While some are fragrance-free, others have an amazing scent that leaves the skin very fragrant. Because they are creamy, they adhere well to the skin and the scent lasts all day.

2. Body oil

Oils are the most “powerful” version of moisturizer, as they moisturize even the driest skin, leaving it silky smooth. In general, body oils have strong and striking fragrances, making them a good option for those who prefer not to wear perfume and still have soft skin. These products, however, are not suitable for oily skin.
